Abilities Awareness Week​









​​



​​


​​

​Abilities Awareness Week is a program that gives Banyan students a glimpse of what it would be like to have different abilities. During this is a very exciting and important “life lesson” week, students participate in hands-on activities and learn about what it is like to have different "abilities."  The goal of this week is to help our students understand that we all have a variety of differences as well as similarities and have the need for respect, acceptance, inclusion, and friendship.


Get Involved!

We need parents, grandparents, and friends to help run 5 unique hands-on stations in the MPR. No previous experience is necessary and step-by-step instructions will be provided. Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Fine Motor Station: students string Froot Loops while wearing socks on their hands
  • Vision Station: students try to put a puzzle together while wearing a blindfold

Volunteers may SIGN UP for one or more sessions.  For more information and to get involved, please contact Jenn Miller, Abilities Awareness Committee Chair. 


About the Nametags Assembly Program
One Revolution Foundation motto, “It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you,” teaches students the 4 Ss of Resilience, questions we ask ourselves when things go wrong. The intentionally universal message encourages students to apply the tools in resilience and see obstacles as opportunities for growth and learning instead of roadblocks. We all face challenges. How we address our challenges determines our success.

Nametags Assembly Program looks at the labels, often the limitations, we put on ourselves and others. Lex will inspire students to challenge those limitations, encouraging them to create Nametags - concrete representations of the goals they want to pursue and the people they want to become.
